About Medford
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal.

After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.

Annual Fletcher Inclusion Forum: Inclusion, Inc.
Since 2013, the Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) has hosted dynamic annual fora on the intersection of inclusive growth and business. The first annual Fletcher Inclusion Forum, entitled “Extreme Inclusion: Dignity, Development and Financial Services,” was followed by “The Inclusive City.” Both events sought to explore one aspect of how the private, public, and social sectors can partner to create more inclusive ecosystems. The Fletcher Inclusion Forum series has proved to be successful, consistently drawing hundreds of key stakeholders and practitioners for meaningful knowledge sharing, discourse, and ideation. “Inclusion, Inc.” will draw upon IBGC’s ongoing research in Sustainable and Inclusive Business Activities (SIBA) focusing on key barriers and common issues to inclusive business at scale in emerging and developed markets. “Inclusion, Inc.” will explore the role of corporations in supporting more inclusive and sustainable business models. Key topics for discussion within this theme will include the language of SIBA, measurement, and the role of catalytic individuals vs. mandates within corporations. “Inclusion, Inc.” will bring together scholars, representatives from government, industry, and NGOs and students to engage in dialogue, exchange ideas, and problem-solve.
